2023 Audi Q6 E-Tron Preview, Pricing, & Release Date

2023 Audi Q6 E-Tron – Continued work is being done on the new Audi Q6 E-Tron. The pure EV crossover nameplate has been extensively tested by the German automaker since last year. However, spy photos from the latest testing show that there is more. The Q6 E-Tron prototype was spotted by our spy photographers in Sweden. The front and back are now lit by production lights. Don’t be surprised, however, if the Mickey lights on the top aren’t made. They will likely only be used in an emergency.

2023 Audi Q6 E-Tron Review

Split-type headlights are the most striking feature of the Audi Q6 E-Tron. This design is very similar to the BMW SAVs that will be available in the upcoming X7. Split headlights have an upper section that can be used for LED daytime running lights, which double as turn signals. This is similar to other designs. Production taillights are also available for the rear, with horizontal graphics instead of the old round lamps. The Audi Q6 E-Tron will sit between the Q4 E-Tron which is on top of the MEB platform, and the full-sized E-Tron flagship EV. It is based on a modified version of the MLB architecture.

2023 Audi Q6 E-Tron Debuts

The underpinnings of the Q6 E-Tron’s PPE architecture are shared with the Porsche Macan electric vehicle. The Macan EV will debut ahead of the Q6 E-Tron. However, both models will hit the market in 2023. Both the non-EV Macan and the Audi Q5 will be available side by side.
